Southern Tier Business Makes Big Donations to Help Pets and Elderly
The Broome County Humane Society and Meals on Wheels of Western Broome both received huge monetary donations thanks to a Southern Tier business.
Matthew's Subaru on Old Vestal Road in Vestal presented the checks to both charities this Tuesday.
According to WBNG, the money is part of Subaru's "Share the Love" initiative. When people purchase a Subaru, Subaru of America donates $250 to the charity of the customer's choosing. New Subaru owners get to choose from The National Parks Foundation, Make-A-Wish, the ASPCA, or Meals on Wheels.
Matthews presented a check in the amount of $21,005 to the Broome County Humane Society, and a check for $6,765 to Meals on Wheels of Western Broome.
The report stated that over the past few years Matthews has contributed over $93,000 to the Broome County Humane Society.
According to the news story, Meals on Wheels served over 42,000 meals to residents last year.
